    Artistic Side
Of Law Seen
By Spencer
Professor Talks at Lane
County Bar Meeting
Court Said to Preserve Beauty
For All Senses Except
That of Vision
Carlton E. Spencer, professor of
law, spoke on "Aesthetic Consider
ations in the Law” at the monthly
meeting of the Lane county bar
association at Lee Duke's cafe
last night.
Professor Spencer’s speech dealt
with the phases of law in which
the desire to preserve and create
things of beauty has exerted an
influence, giving examples of cas
es and court decisions.
Aesthetic Sense Upheld
He showed how courts have up
held taxation for the purpose of
establishing things which give
pleasure through the aesthetic
sense—parks and opera houses,
for example. Courts have also, he
stated, upheld the power of emi
nent domain, so that states and
municipalities can take over land
in order to preserve the beauties
of nature.
The courts have, however, said
Professor Spencer, hesitated to al
low the state to exercise its police
power on aesthetic grounds with
regard to the use a citizen may
make of his property. He showed,
through concrete examples, how
the law does not promote beauty
directly, but does it indirectly by
forbidding the ugly and the un
sightly on the grounds of morality,
general health, or safety.
Law Recognizes Senses
For example, laws have regulat
ed and prohibited billboards, on
the ground that they are danger
ous, since they may be blown
down and injure pedestrians, or
that they provide a place for
dumping refuse, when the real
reason for prohibiting them is that
they are unsightly.
Spencer pointed out that the law
recognizes the sense of smell, in
that it forbids different trades,
such as raising pigs, in certain dis
tricts; and that it. recognizes the
sense of hearing, by forbidding
noisy factories in residence dis
tricts; but that, outwardly at least,
it refuses to recognize the sense
of vision, and will not regulate
beauty or unsightliness as such.
Original Etchings
By San Francisco
Artist in Display
Original etchings by Will Wilke
of San Francisco, who is illustra
tor for John Henry Nash, private
printer in San Francisco and hon
orary member of the University of
Oregon faculty, are on display in
the Co-op store windows.
Wilke is the father of Frank
Wilke, who is registered in the
school of architecture and arts.
He makes his etchings directly on
the copper plate instead of using
wax as do most teachers. The art
ist is a native son of California
and most of his subjects came from
in and around San Francisco.
The display here is of smaller
etchings than he usually makes
and pieces are on sale for $3.50
to $10.00, rather than the price of
$35 and $50 for which the larger
pieces are sold at Gumps and other
large San Francisco art stores.
Miss Vatnstal Visits
Miss Gladys Vatnstal, former
member of the University library
staff and now in the central li
brary of Corvallis, visited Eugene
for the Roland Hayes concert and
was the guest of Miss Frances
Corcoran of the library staff.

Also, “The World Changes,”
Paul Muni, Aline MacMahon,
Mary Astor, Guy Kibbee.
COLONIAL — “Wake Up and
Dream,” Jack Buchanan.
Late showing “Back Street,”
“Fugitive Lovers” capitalizes on
the publicity given an event of a
short time ago, when a lot of
school kids were caught in a snow
story in a school bus.
In this story the hero, an es
caped convict, steals a big trans
continental bus, and he and the
girl head for the mountains. They
find a man lying across the road,
a child wandering about, and a bus
full of school kids in a ditch. One
kid, it seems, is missing, and when
last seen was headed for a cliff
nearby. So hero Montgomery casts
his chances of escape to the winds,
and what winds they are, and
hikes over the cliff to save the
“The World Changes” concerns
the life and times of a cattle brok
er from his birth to his death.
Donald Cook, Portland boy, and
University of Oregon grad, has
the part of one of the millionaire’s
foolish sons.
Music and Drama
“Wake Up and Dream,” starring
Jack Buchanan, stage favorite,
holds forth at the Colonial again
tonight. It is an English musical
production of the breezily sophis
ticated variety.
And this, my friends, is Fay
Webb, otherwise known as Mrs.
Rudy Vallee, who is the girl who
needs $7400 per month in order to
live away from the boy. $2000 for
clothing, and another $1000 for
house expenses.
The Colonial management is also
showing “Back Street’’ at an owl
matinee. Irene Dunne as Ray
Schmidt and John Boles as Walter
Saxel give performances which
linger long in the memory. Fannie
Hurst is the authoress of the book
on which the picture is based.
R. C. Clark Asked
To Review Newly
Published History
Volume Is to Be Used as Text in
Colleges; Clark’s Book Is
Source for Material
Professor R. C. Clark, head of
the history department, has been
asked to review a newly-pub
lished book, “A History of the
Pacific Coast,” by John Walter
Caughley, assistant professor of
history at the University of Cali
fornia at Los Angeles, for a com
ing number of the American His
torical Review.
This book, which has been pri
vately published by the author,
comprises a history of the Pacific
coast from California to Alaska
from the earliest times. The
writer devotes chapters to the In
dians, the Spanish period in Cali
fornia, the early history of Ore
gon, and the development of
Alaska and British Columbia. It
has been designed as a text book
for use in colleges.
Caughley received much of his
information for the volume from
Clark's own work, “A History of
the Willamette Valley."
"The book is unique in its treat
ment of one section of America,”
says Clark. “Caughley is an au
thority in this field and writes
well. As a text book, it will
doubtless serve its purpose.”
Marine History Book
Received at Library
Replacing a copy of which has
been missing for some time, a copy
j of Lewis and Dryden's “Marine
History of the Pacific Northwest”
j was received at the library.
The book, a large leather-bound
j volume, was published in Portland
by the Lewis and Dryden printing
| company in 1895. It is part of the
' Oregon collection of the University

pie in the Saar basin vote in 1935,
they will think twice before they
return to Hitler's Germany. It
was earlier expected that 90 per
cent of them would vote for re
turn to Germany. Williams was
disappointed with Hitler's voice,
magnetism, and ideas, saying that
the Nuremburg speeches were
mostly platitudes about art, mu
sic, and race purity. He describes
Hitler as telling his people that
their victorious armies were
stabbed in the back by socialists
and “reds,” non-Aryans took their
money by inflation and their jobs
by depression.
Williams estimated that about
25 per cent of Germany's popu
lation are Hitlerites, another 25
per cent friendly because it is
good business, 25 hopeful waiters,
and the final fourth hates but
keeps silent.

Sez Sue
Hello There
All about can be heard the flip
flap of new leaves being turned, for
young 1934 has just started. Every
turning page reveals a new style
note that can be found down town
in Eugene’s own shops, if you know
where and how to look. Look your
best for the Ball tonight! Come on,
join the gang for a shopping tour
with Sue!
Novel Fiats —
“Vas you dere, Shar-lie?” If not, you'd better go down,
today and see the grand oxfords for spring at Graham’s Flor
sheim Store on Willamette. . . . I’ve seen the best looking white
elk with plain toes, black or brown saddles, fiber soles and
spring heels, and for only $5.00! Just the thing for campus
Femme Fat ale’l —
You’ll feel positively “femme fatale” in a new formal from i
H. Gordon’s. ... If anything ever invited admiration, it’s a
divine white formal, high in front, ver’ low in back with the
cleverest four-rhinestone strap effects yet—sort of leads ’em
astray—or a.—Mae idea—Do you follow me? And the grand
est thing—you can afford to plunge, for they have a complete
line of $13.75 specials. Don’t forget the new “undies” depart
ment! Take a good look at the new boucle suits in hand knit
patterns. . . . No end stunning!
Have you seen Cynthia Liljeqvist’s smart little brown off
the-face cap? It’s too tiny and too new to be labeled in the
stereotyped hat class, it’s clever—so Sue lez “cap” it!
New —
And did Sue go off the deep end about the perfect new
formals at Barnharts, and the startling low prices—from $5.95
up. A gasp for a lovely deep blue dinner dress, informal or
formal it’s a tricky reversible, triple duty dress—with a gold
metal trim, decorously high in front but leaves not a lick of
work for the imagination in the back. . . . Watch for it at the
dance tonight! - Then there are heavenly jeweled bodice effects
and clever no back, scarce a strap dresses. . . . Don’t miss ’em!
. . . You'll love the new prints and angel-skin laces. . . . Just
a word about their regular $1.00 chiffon and service weight
hose on special for only 69 gents.
Call the ChaSe Garden Florist right
Say, you men! . . .
Don’t make “Just an or
chid to you” a mere song.
. . . Get an orchid with
silver or matching rib
bons for the One and
Only Senior Ball—hang
on this is the smooth
part—$1.50 up. . . . It’s
such fun to go dancing if
a corsage arrives first.
How about the latest—
gardenias and lavender
violas at prices your
pocketbook can stand ?
Speaking of orchids--Sue is sending one to Chet Beede
for the guadiest, most goshawful tie seen this week. ... A baby
blue and white polka dot tie, shades of 1800. Step right up,
girls, don't push!
What’s This?
So that you can put your best foot forward, be sure to
drop in at the College Boot Shoppe while you’re shopping to
get a pair of silver, silver and gold, or moire with satin trim—
which, by the by, take a grand dye to match your formal
sandals - you’ll trip the light fantastic truly lightly if you’re
wearing new shoesies. Sue sez they are a grand bargain at
$5.45. If pumps are “it" for you, the College Boot Shoppe has
them in white, moire, or crepe for -imagine!—$3.95 and $4.95.
An Idea —
All the ideas in the world can’t make your winter warm
campus clothes snappy, unassisted. . . . Sue saw, at Beards, the
most clever taffeta and silk crepe blouses in gay colored stripes,
plaids, and shepherd checks that depart from perpendicular
traditions to do a bit of gentle waving (can repeal be respon
sible for this staggering?). How grand you'll feel in a new
.blouse and one of the outstanding items is that you can buy
them for $1.50 up. . . . Do invest in some new chiffon or service
weight hose in all the up-to-the-minute shades for 69 cents.
And So
Sue knows you’re going dancing tonight—so top things
off right— get a finger wave at the Mills Beauty Salon. . . .
Really, gals, it's a pleasure to go to the shop. It has been
newly opened and remodeled and is lovely in harmonizing green
and orchid fixtures. Waves are only 50 cents and—joy of joys!
they have installed the latest in fast hair dyers. . . . Speed
is what the rushed co-ed craves. For speed, efficiency and that
top note of perfection go to Mills Beauty Salon.
